    Spray them with a solution of water and a few drops of dish
    soap and a pinch of cayenne pepper in a quart spray bottle I found this recipe years ago in the Farmers Almanac. Have been using it on indoor and outdoor plants ever since

    Lady bugs. Either gather them in your yard and relocate them to your plants with aphids or any garden store sells live lady bugs. Works like a charm!

    going to try this this year, I was told to get a yellow solo cup, slather Vaseline on the outside, put it on a stake in your garden, the lady said cup has to be yellow, only place I found yellow was Walmart.

      The yellow works well for white flies,too. Insecticidal soap(or home made) works well. I run my hand down the leaf or stem and clean them off!
